Obama's HillaryCare

On the heels of Hillary Clinton’s speech on universal health care last week, Barack Obama promised he would provide health insurance to every American by the end of his first term as President today. Like Hillary, Obama supports seizing the Bush tax cuts to pay for his plan and forcing insurance providers to enroll high-risk clients.

FDA Reform: Promote the Approval of Life-Saving Biogeneric Drugs

Issue: The Senate has introduced the “Access to Life-Saving Medicine Act,” which has the potential to provide patients access to important new therapeutic drugs at competitive prices.  This legislation is a critical step toward opening the marketplace to important new medicines, increasing accessibility and affordability for consumers.  The bill provides for new competition in the provision of biologics, which are being used to treat a variety of conditions from AIDS to Alzheimer’s to several different cancers.

Health Care

This piece was originally posted at The North Carolina Conservative.com We hear a lot from some legislators working hard to bring us peace in the world, jobs back to the U.S, higher wages for everyone, an end to terrorism and the health care we deserve. Of course, you know that health care is defined as somebody else paying for it and "free" health care is bound to cost more than anyone can afford.

Competition is the Way

"When businesses compete, you win," is true for consumers in every industry in America. From cell phones to computers, quality is improving and costs are shrinking as companies fight to offer the public the best product at the best price. But this philosophy is sadly missing from our health-care insurance system. Health care comprises nearly 20 percent of our national economy, but outdated bureaucracy and red tape have stifled competition and raised costs. As a result, today more than 45 million are without any health coverage.

Burdens of regulatory fat

After Hurricane Katrina, very few members of Congress have stepped forward with a meaningful plan for paying what's already an astronomical tab, other than driving America deeper into the red. While the hurricane relief debt steadily climbs, only a few members have dared suggest this spending be offset by reducing ever so slightly some of the taxpayer billions spent on pork-barrel special interest programs.
